Picis launches total perioperative automation solution in Europe

8 May 2008

Picis has announced the European launch of Picis Total Perioperative Automation suite of products for managing care through every aspect of surgery.

The Institut Mutualiste Montsouris (IMM) in the south of Paris, a nonprofit private hospital with over 1,100 full-time staff, worked closely with Picis in the validation of this latest version of the system for the French market.

Picis Total Perioperative Automation suite, part of the CareSuite family of high-acuity solutions, provides a unified system that includes the clinical, administrative and business components needed to operate the perioperative suite efficiently, and addresses some of the fundamental issues facing healthcare providers in Europe, namely:

  • reducing waiting lists by improving surgical throughput;
  • reducing costs through better management of resources, supplies, implants, drugs and instruments;
  • automating materials management;
  • optimizing use of limited resources — especially staff;
  • helping clinicians improve surgical outcomes and reduce medical errors through better documentation;
  • improving communication by decreasing repetitive documentation and phone calls; and
  • improving clinician and patient satisfaction.

“Choosing Picis Total Perioperative Automation suite was a strategic decision, which supported our desire to be at the forefront of healthcare technology in France,” said Jean-Michel Gayraud, chief operating officer at IMM. “The Picis solution helps physicians and nurses to work on an accurate integrated record, increase staff efficiency, reduce costs, improve communication and help to improve the quality of patient care.”

“Total Perioperative Automation is the optimum solution to efficiently support hospitals through their computerization projects. It supports clinicians, department heads and executives who expect the best technology in their high-acuity areas without compromising their hospital-wide IT strategies,” commented Philippe Mabille, Picis general director for France.

“This latest version of Total Perioperative Automation means hospitals can leverage Picis connectivity with other existing hospital technology to improve efficiency and provide a complete record across the continuum of care.”
